Patterns for t-shirts

Hi there,

I’m having a lazy morning plucking up the courage to go and make a start on the jeans.

I’ve done some housework.  Showered and dressed.  Packed the family off for the day.  Run Husband to the garage AGAIN with his wretched car. I’m so thankful that we can afford two cars and that the kids and I can easily get to nursery and out to play during the work week, but I really wish the warning lights/knocking noises/things packing up would stop on his car.

I’ve played some solitaire and generally procrastinated about going up to the sewing loft.

And I’ve read some blogs.

Which prompts me to this post.  I know I was going to show you how I made the pattern for Button’s t-shirt refashion

…well today I came across this post at Running With Scissors, which explains it all far better than I could.

So rather than reinvent the wheel…do you mind if I send you across there to see how its done.  And soon I’ll show you what I did with the neckband!


But first I should gather my wits and go sew.  The jeans are calling.

Have a lovely weekend.

  1. She gets cuter in every photo! I will head over to check out the link but I am currently looking at my jeans which are wearing thin in the bottom and deciding whether to take them apart and follow along with you!

      I finally got the courage to cut mine out today. I’ve done a first pin fit and there are a couple of tweaks but hopefully after a little work on them tomorrow I’ll be ready to sew. Fingers crossed!
